Mac has failed to impress me for lets say .. the last 3-4 years ?! I used to eagerly wait Mac collection launches but now I just randomly stumble upon new items when I visit my local counter . The temperature rising collection has gotten a lot of hype on the blogs and that is why I made a halfhearted drive to my nearest counters . I played with the products for a while and ended up buying 4 items !!! * REJOICE*
I bought :
- Bare My Soul quad .
- Liquid Passion lipglass .
- Rhythm lipglass
- Feel My Pulse lipstick .
|Mac Bare My Soul Quad .|
|Mac Bare My Soul Quad .|
Bare my soul : A taupe with sandy gold undertones . The shadow is very smooth and pigmented .
Romantico : A yellow gold with gold sparkle . It is a on the sheer side but can be packed on for fuller coverage .
Friendly : A rich chocolate brown with a copper frost (Excellent pigmentation ! )
When in Rio : A rich chocolate with forest green frost .(Mac club on Steriods !! ) .
The color combination is not unique but the quad has excellent color payoff and together the shadows make an amazing eye look . I can see myself using this for a quick day look or a full on sultry night look .
If you missed out on this then try patina , goldmine , mulch and club together for a similar look .
If you follow me on twitter ( Shameless plug ) then you have probably heard me complaining about Mac lipglasses . I HATE how they feel on my lips and they always dry them out . That being said the lip glasses in this collection are different ! They are alot thinner and oddly moisturizing too . I picked up liquid passion ( because I hoard nude lip products ) and Rhythm .

|Mac Rhythm lipglass , Mac Rhythm + Feel My Pulse lipstick , Mac Feel My Pulse lipstick and Mac Liquid Passion .|
Rhythm is a sheer magenta/purple with magenta shimmer .My swatch really doesn't do it any justice :( It is alot more shimmery IRL .
Feel My Pulse is a magenta/purple with a creemsheen formula . Its is nicely pigmented and makes a lovely statement lip . While I don't think its work place appropriate, but it does make an amazing statement lip.
Liquid Passion is a milky flesh toned lipglass .It is quite opaque and looks great paired with a bronzey eye look .
Overall , I don't think the collection is very unique but quality wise this is one of the best Mac collections in the past 3 years . I actually quite liked the bronze packaging and all the items are decently pigmented .
Limited Edition ? Yes
